DIANA CHAN: Love is the only satisfactory answer to the problem of human existance. - Dr. Fromm Diana is one of the new arrivals to our land this year. From the beginning she has been able to adapt to lie challenges of life in 6U. According to rumour, Diana is making her mark, literally, in demanding subjects like geography and algebra. Apart from her partici- pation in our infamous class affairs, Diana has shown her upright character in all ways - even though she did " cheat " at Utensil Lunch. Since when do you find chopsticks challenging Diana? Next year Diana plans to study commerce. She should do well because she works hard. Good luck Diana! Remember us. 12 PEGGY BETHEL: " We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not figures on a dial. " - Henry David Dhoreau Peggy just joined Elmwood this year. At first wary of the antics played by " old girls " , she can now water- fight with the best of them! Her pet hates are the two bobby pins she employs to get past Mrs. Davies ' keen eyes. Peggy spent her first day in Elmwood by flying off the stage stairs - tripped up by the vicious choir - and hobbled around on crutches for a week but she never complained - or maybe she did and nobody heard. Peggy holds the record for throwing her voice the shortest distance. In class she sits studiously, small squeaks as answers when called upon, but reviving to an amazing degree to scream in the daily free-for-all to get break! When Peggy leaves Elmwood she ' ll leave her bobby pins behind but hopefully she ' ll keep a lot of memories - and many of them couldn ' t have come about without her.

CATHY ASHTON: TALITHA FABRICIUS: If you want to be happy, be happy now; there is no certainty of tomorrow. Talitha arrived in Canada, and at Elmwood six years ago with braids and a " fringe " to work her way to Grade Thirteen and prefect-hood. She ' s also worked her way through four Gilbert and Sullivan ' s and five merit pins, her spare time taken up on the basketball court, making " freak " shots. Talitha is a staunch supporter of Elmwood activities. As they say - " Absence makes the heart grow fonder " . It isn ' t that Talitha spends only a little of her time at school - it ' s just that she spends equal time in so many other places that the percentage comes down. Just follow the trail of smoke from her orange VW or red " Far Audi " and you ' ll find her - or if the car ' s here, you ' ll find her in her corner of the classroom, doing her math and reading " One Flew Over the Cuckoo ' s Nest " - simutaneously. Bad girl! That my joy gives joy my hope gives hope and that i can communicate in some silent way the spirit living in me not by what i say but how i say it . a deep concern a way of listening to the faint heart beats of your existence and life. - Jean Vanier Cathy is one of Elmwood originals - she ' s been here since Grade 5! Who else can remember the charming beige stockings worn by the girls back then? She put herself through a temporary torture in Grade 11 to bring forth her now " Sensuous " self while keeping up her pas- sion for cooking - there ' s nothing like chocolate cake with mayonnaise icing to make a Cafe 5A successful. Long braids and glasses were replaced by a French cut and contact lenses then; now Cathy ' s hair has changed again and she can tell her left contact from her right! Cathy spends her time either asleep in our Common Room or quite awake in Ashbury ' s Common Room. Voted most likely to succeed, but not mentioning at what, we bid you good luck Cathy - and good hunting. n

CATHY GINSBERG: Life without love ' s a load, And time stands still. What we deny to life, to death we give. Then, and then only, when we love, we live. Nobody understands Cathy, but everyone ' s afraid to, so it doesn ' t really matter. Her screams mark a score in one of the basketball games or a correct answer in Economics class. It ' s no wonder Cathy ' s always mov- ing. She ' s the only one in the school who can make it from the locker room to the 6U classroom with an arm- ful of books and still have enough breath to keep talk- ing. Of course, that doesn ' t mean she can make it out of the parking lot in one piece - " I know there ' s a car behind me. I see it, I see it. " CRASH! Wrong car. Still, Cathy ' s liveliness keeps us all on our toes and you must admit - if Cathy ' s in the room, you know it! LESLEY PONG: Life is something growing inside your soul that you want to bring out and share with the human race. This is Lesley ' s first year at Elmwood but she ' s al- ready left an impression by rapidly adapting to Canadian life - especially snow, which isn ' t very plentiful in Hong Kong! A week after putting on skates for the first time, Lesley was skating without a flaw. Next comes skiing! Her main talent, though, lies in a musical direction. Having seen the music only once before, she accompanied a somewhat shabby Grade 13 choir on our Christmas carol. Lesley ' s a quiet, sen- sitive person but still joins in the general throng of activity. Hoping to go to a Canadian university next year, we won ' t be losing her to Hong Kong again for a while yet.
